Girls basketball Bears edged by Oneida in holilday tournament final

first_img Tags: Chittenangogirls basketball But though it trailed 33-23 through three quarters, the Bears weren’t done. It made several key stops and, led again by Ally Shoemaker, whittled down its deficit to a single basket.Then, as time wound down, Chittenango had one more possession, and got a 3-point shot to win the game that found the rim – but bounced in and out before swishing through.Shoemaker finished with 12 points, seven rebounds, six assists, three steals and two blocks, while Cassidy Kelly had 10 points. Emily Moon had six points and six rebounds. For Oneida, Sydney Lusher and Ella Rainbow led with 15 points apiece. Just an inch or two separated the Chittenango girls basketball team from a massive victory over Oneida in last Saturday’s final of the Bears’ holiday tournament.Instead, the state Class B no. 7-ranked Indians held on to prevail, 38-36, handing Chittenango its first defeat of the season, but offering a tantalizing preview of what could happen if the two met again in the Section III Class B playoffs.Much of the game was, for the Bears, a major struggle to score points. Oneida’s defense clamped down for long stretches, especially a second quarter where it limited Chittenango to four points.center_img This was a high-quality tournament from the outset, Oneida holding off Auburn 50-44 in last Friday’s opening round, then Skaneateles proving pesky against Chittenango before the Bears got away to win 66-51.Only up 30-25 at halftime, Chittenango outscored the Lakers 20-13 in the third quarter, and it was Sarah Lanphear leading the way thanks to her 18 points and five rebounds.Shoemaker got 13 points, to go with nine assists and six rebounds. Moon had 10 points and nine rebounds as Kelly got eight points, six rebound and five assists, with Avery Salce adding seven points. Skaneateles went on to beat Auburn 45-35 in the consolation game.With its two-week break over, Cazenovia was back in action last Friday, at 6-1 Solvay, and used its defense to seize control against the Bearcats and prevail 53-35.Lindsey Lawson and the rest of the Lakers settled matters early, roaring to a 37-14 lead by halftime, which allowed it to dictate the pace the rest of the way. Ryleigh Bidwell paced Solvay with 13 points.Chittenango had another big test on Friday night when it took on undefeated, state Class A no. 22-ranked Christian Brothers Academy at Buddy Wleklinski Court.And while it had plenty of good moments, the Bears could never fully recover from a rough start in a 65-53 defeat to the Brothers.In the first of several key runs, CBA had a 10-0 push late in the first quarter. From there, it kept Chittenango at a distance, occasionally letting its lead slip to single digits, but answering each time.Shoemaker did all she could with 22 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and five blocks, while Lanphear had 13 points and nine rebounds, Moon adding 12 points and five rebounds.Yet it was the Brothers’ Brooke Jarvis that proved unstoppable, carrying CBA’s attack in the second half as she netted 20 of her game-high 29 points in those last two periods.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story last_img read more

Mayor denies City Hall is cash-strapped

first_img… even as service providers threaten pull-out over excessive debtEven as several service providers, including Puran Brothers Disposal Services and Excalibur Security Services, are threatening to withhold their services given the excessive amounts of money owed to them by City Hall, Mayor Patricia Chase Green is maintaining that City Hall is not cash-strapped.Concerns were raised several days ago after information surfaced that City Hall was in deep debt, and could not afford to pay workers’ salaries and cover their expenses. It was also outlined that drainage contractors have ceased operations and rehabilitative works at the Kitty Market had come to a halt owing to financial difficulties.However, Chase Green has denied these claims, telling Guyana Times that the allegations were untrue, and City Hall was capable ofMayor Patricia Chase Greencovering the municipality’s monthly wage bill which was estimated to be $67 million. The Mayor revealed that workers were paid on Friday afternoon.“As I sit here, the treasurer has not informed me that City Council is bankrupt. Employees were paid here, and those who are being paid through the bank…their money have been sent through,” Chase Green stated.As it concerns the claim that security personnel had been withdrawn from several markets and other locations as a result of City Hall owing the security service, the Mayor maintained that she has not been informed of such, and rubbished the claims as hearsay.“As far as I’m aware, the security personnel are on duty as well as the Constabulary,” she stated.Chase Green stated that she has not received any such reports which suggest that City Hall was incapable of paying its debts, and, as such, she questioned the authenticity and reliability of the information that was published.However, the head of Excalibur Security Services, Retired Lieutenant Colonel George Gomes had confirmed to media operatives that he recalled security guards from several markets and other municipal locations on account of City Hall failing to pay its debt. It has been reported in sections of the media that the Council owed the security provider in excess of $30 million.Meanwhile, Puran Brothers Disposal Services has confirmed that plans are underway to pull its services unless the monies owed were paid off. A source close to the Disposal Services explained that management had sent several pieces of correspondence to City Hall concerning its debt, which was in excess of $40 million, but the Council was yet to respond.last_img read more
